I know its not directly related to flowers, but I ran across this photo today and it reminded me how great it was to meet Steven Tyler. He is very down to earth and has a great sense of humor he also immediately got that ezBloomers is good for the customer and the florist alike.
Its spring its spring
Oh I just can’t wait
To find fruits on the vases
And flowers on my plate
I want to hear the warm sun
And feel the robin singing
Watch the scent of the flowers
And smell the butterflies flying
Its spring its spring
I’m so full of glee
For the people will bloom
And the flowers will be happy
The gray fields shall be covered
With the magic of the meadow
And the brown sky shall be painted
With the blossoms of the rainbow
Its spring its spring
How can I be blue?
For it is the time of spring
And only the spring brings you
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, the saint’s religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast–on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage. Send flowers online from ezBloomers.
Valentine’s Day is by far the biggest one day holiday in the florists industry. As a consumer you look forward to sending beautiful roses or flowers to your loved ones. But from a florist point of view it is by far the most stressful holiday. The reason being, there is so much more demand on that one day then any other day. And the number of deliveries can really tax the florists, his employees and the drivers who deliver. With this in mind here are a few tips to consumers to assure that you are very pleased with your Valentine’s Day Flowers.
- Order very early like today – florists love early orders as it helps them stay organized.
- Do not wait until Feb 13th to order – many florists are already sold out and many consumers are disappointed because the holiday is not even here yet and florists have sold out for that day.
- Ask for delivery the day before. This is the best chance to avoid delivery problems. Again florists love this because they manage their deliveries much easier. Orders during Valentine’s Day easily quadruple during Valentine’s Day. In some shops deliveries jump by 4oo% for the Valentine’s Day orders. Also your loved one will be the first to receive the flowers before anyone else, and gets to enjoy them for a longer period.
- Keep your order simple. Elegant but simple. This will provide you with the best chance for success.
- And of course order through ezBloomers. We don’t charge a service fee; most national online sites charge $15 or more. We do not charge commission like all other national online order sites do and we match up your order with the florist who will best fill your order.
Price, Cost & Size: The florist will fill your order to the full value of your budget minus taxes and “Delivery Fee” and based on the then current cost of product. Like businesses in other industries florists are affected by supply and demand, seasonal non-availability, shortages and regional pricing. Especially, during Valentine’s Day & Mother’s Day the two busiest days of the year. During these times the cost of product, particularly Roses typically increase in cost by as much as 35%. If your order contains Roses, we recommend adding at least 20% to the amount of your order during these two major holidays.
THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
by Clement Clarke Moore or Henry Livingston
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!” As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; “Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow; The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.” and don’t forget the flowers.
A floral arrangement that works very well as a centerpiece – a festive topping to any holiday table.
